Ninkasi Brewing Co. is planning a $15-million addition and will add 20 employees by 2013; Hop Valley Brewing Co. is adding production space and a tasting room; and Oakshire Brewing Co. is planning a $1-million expansion and will add 10 employees by 2013. The Register-Guard, 5/3/2012
  • Siskiyou Community Health Center was awarded a $3.4-million grant to expand its Cave Junction medical clinic. It will feature a full-service dental facility and pharmacy. The expansion will enable the center to hire the equivalent of 26.5 full-time employees. Grants Pass Daily Courier, 5/8/2012
  • The Confederated Tribes of the Coos, Lower Umpqua and Siuslaw Indians are buying the Ocean Dunes Golf Links adjacent to their Three Rivers Casino and Hotel in Florence. Plans call for a new clubhouse and a redesign of the course. The Register-Guard, 4/14/2012 
One such announcement will result in job reductions:
